technology solutions that can help them in their everyday lives, which is why i'm so excited to introduce everyone to the hd mirrorcam, the greatest innovation in dash cam technology. >> we're all familiar with dash cams. the police have them, and they really serve great purpose because when you're driving, anything can happen. these capture the action, and you can have your fun with them, too. but the heart of the matter is, when you have a dash cam, it creates peace of mind, safety, and security. you know that sinking feeling you get when, god forbid, somebody hits you, or somebody tries to break into the car, or someone that happens, and then it's "he said, she said?" well, now we've got the evidence right here. what the hd mirrorcam has done is take away the obstacle of having this extra thing stuck on your windshield. well, here's where we've developed a game-changer. we're going to take your rear-view mirror and make it better. we're going to put a dash cam in your rear-view mirror because
2:35 am
this screen is build right into the rear-view mirror. it slips over your existing rear-view mirror with adjustable straps, and you have a built-in video recorder, a built-in dash cam. you're not gonna have an extra thing stuck on the middle of your windshield. well, i'll let jim explain how it works. >> so, here's what the hd mirrorcam looks like. this is the camera lens. so small and unobtrusive, it's less than the size of a quarter. you have these flexible straps that are going to wrap around any existing mirror, no matter how large or how small. when you turn it on, right there is your lcd screen, built right into the mirror, where you can view and play back your videos right from the unit. and you can turn off the screen while you're driving, and it will still keep recording. it records high-definition video and audio onto an sd card that goes right into the sd slot. you can use it to record what's happening anywhere outside of your car or inside of your car with the 350-degree swivel lens.
2:36 am

2:37 am
and rate hikes. >> yikes. >> well, that's why the first time you use the hd mirrorcam, you're going to love it because it's gonna capture everything. >> everything. >> can you imagine the power of being able to show the police exactly what happened? >> people are driving crazy these days. they're running lights, they're cutting you off. now with hd mirrorcam, you capture it all. you not only capture the video in hd, but you also capture the audio of anything that's happening inside or outside of your car at any given moment all the time. >> wow. it's like having a black box for your car. >> exactly. >> now, i know that many of you may be thinking "the last thing i need is another piece of technology to worry about." but that's the beauty of the hd mirrorcam. it is so easy to use! and you don't have to think about it at all. >> you know what? let's show everyone just how easy the hd mirrorcam is to use. first of all, it's ready to go
